1 Timothy 6:11-16 (1 Timothy 6:11-16)David Page, 21st July 2019
Part of the 1 Timothy series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
Paul gives Timothy a charge.
Flee and pursue endurance and gentleness. Fight the good fight. Take hold of eternal life. Three things will motivate him. Looking back to Jesus's example of good confession. Looking forward to what is to come-the return of Jesus. Looking up to the vision of the one we serve.

1 Timothy 6:11–16 (Listen)
11 But as for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness. 12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. 13 I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who in his testimony before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, 14 to keep the commandment unstained and free from reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 which he will display at the proper time—he who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, 16 who alone has immortality, who dwells in unapproachable light, whom no one has ever seen or can see. To him be honor and eternal dominion. Amen.
